    As some of our more special pupils seemed to struggle with the point, I'll try to clarify. You need to answer both questions correctly to advance. If you answer the first one incorrectly you're out regardless of whether you get the 2nd correct. Is that clear now, children?

    One does hope so....
    So what happens regarding question 1 if another wicket doesn't fall for the rest of this test?

    No wicket fell, therefore "the next wicket to fall" was not out caught. Thus the "no" vote wins.

    But Question One has to come before Question Two, which clearly can't happen as Mitch won't be bowling any more this Test. How confusing.

    Update time:

    Will the next wicket to fall be dismissed out "caught"?

    Katman nicks to the cordon, so that's a "yes". Maybe not the anticipated victim, however.

    Fallers:

    NUFAN No
    Noble One No
    GIMH No
    pasag No
    Somerset No
    Howe_zat No
    f_o_s No
    marc No
    fertang No
    GF No
    Marcuss No
    zaremba No
    joels344 No
    SKD No
    TumTum No


    Standing:

    Clapo Yes
    chalky Yes
    ripper Yes
    PC Yes
    MW1304 Yes
    pskov Yes
    Pickup Yes
    Brumby Yes
    stephen Yes
    Adamc Yes
    Pothas Yes
    Fotw Yes


    Will Mitchell Johnson take the wicket of one of the top 7 by COP?

    Given that next wicket was the Katman, we already knew the answer was in the negative.

    Fallers:

    morgieb Yes
    Clapo Yes
    chalky Yes
    PC Yes
    pskov Yes
    Pickup Yes
    Brumby Yes
    stephen Yes
    Pothas Yes
    Fotw Yes


    Standing:

    Spark No
    ripper No
    MW1304 No
    Adamc No


    Questions for our remaing big 4 at COP.

    Nah Question 2 still comes second because it's not the close of play yet. Whether or not his team is bowling is technically irrelevant - he's not going to take a wicket for the rest of the day.

    So it's Yes/No, as the result.

    No hint of bias, because I forgot to vote (and I would've voted Yes/Yes anyway ).

    I deserve a bye for picking England not losing a wicket TBH.

    Ok, no rush to tip, all predictions made before the toss accepted.

    Question 3: Will 2 or more wickets fall before lunch on day 1?

    Question 4: Will any one batsman have scored a ton before COP on day 1?

    I've not managed to reach past the opening question yet. Can I suggest for the next opener: "Will a meteorite land on the pitch?"
